I can not express how truly amazing yesterday was. When organizing this rally we never guessed that it would be as successful as it was. Our biggest fear was that when we opened up the mic to people, no one would speak. But instead, an unbelievable amount of students, staff and alumni came forward with their own stories. We heard over and over again yesterday “this is the first time i’m telling anyone this,” even “this is the first time i’m admitting to myself I was assaulted.” To me, the most important thing that came out of yesterday is that we have started a discussion. People who had been so scared about speaking of their experiences, were saying them into a microphone in front of around 300 strangers, and news stations. Yesterday, many learned that they were not alone. And that what happened to them was not their fault. Please don’t let what happened yesterday stop there. Engage with administration about policy change. Discuss ways to change our campus climate surrounding sexual assault and harassment. And know, that we can change the normalization of these crimes. 
End the Silence, End the Shame
